My Philosophy of Education My philosophy of education is very simple: Creating a safe haven and planned inclusion of all students. In order to achieve this, the teacher should have a good comprehension of education, the teacher’s role, student’s responsibilities, parents and community roles and opportunities, and that knowledge is power.

I know that my students will still be children and may not grasp the concept of making these efforts every day. Each day will be a new day with my students, so whatever happened before will be in the past, I will begin a fresh start with my students every day. Students will come to school under many circumstances, mainly formed by the parents and guardians. I understand that it can be challenging for some families to provide for their children. I would not want to add to this burden, but just how I would have expectations for my
